“A totally end to end outstanding experience. The staff meet and greet you as a valued guest. The food is truly exceptional, presentation is first class with flavours to match. The wine flight that compliments is well chosen and enhances the food completely. Staff are attentive and knowledgeable taking great pride in the food and wines they are serving. A top drawer restaurant.”
